I really fell in love with this place but it is not for everyone. It is the second story of some small businesses and it is not conventionally arranged in terms of doors, locks, baths and other things. Having said that, I loved it. I loved the location which is right downtown but very small townish. It is almost unreally quiet given its location. It is on the back of building overlooking a walking alley, which is very nice to look at. It is walking distance to many things. I loved the nearby Ramen house and the ice cream truck that showed up every evening. Lots of parks and great architecture nearby. Alanna was lovely and completely responsive.
A friend as well as myself stayed at Alanna's place at different moments. Her apartment is fantastic (spacious, great downtown location) and Alanna is a terrific host, felt right at home there.
Thanks Alanna for the great place-and generosity-
Lots of light/clean/easy!
super central for access to public transit if you don't feel like being in a traffic jam! Excellent ramen close by if that is your thing-
Alanna was a great host. I had the place all to myself and enjoyed a comfortable 4 night stay. She asked what breakfast food I like and stocked the fridge in advance, which was really above and beyond. I'd definitely stay again.
I loved staying in Alanna's sunlit and cozy apartment. It was clean, comfortable and had everything you could need. It is also very well situated in terms of transportation (good if you don't have a car) and many places of interest are nearby. Alanna is very charming, resourceful, generous, easy to communicate with, and a wonderful artist! Her tips for the neighborhood are spot on. I highly recommend her place and would stay there again.
I didn't meet Alanna, but she had very good instructions and we communicated by whatsapp. That went very well. Her house is very cosy and I felt comfortable there. In front of the house is a Japanese supermarket which opens at ten. I would definitely come back to this place. Thanx again Alanna.
Four of us students stayed in Alanna's apartment during this Christmas vacation. We enjoyed the location and the apartment itself a lot. It was great for a group for four or three to share. Alanna was very helpful. We would love to come back again!
Lovely apartment, quite and filled with sunlight during the day. The bed was pretty comfortable. The neighborhood is nice and seemed relatively safe. Plenty of things to do and places to eat within walking distance. Super convenient to public transportation - Pasadena and Hollywood are just minutes away. Alanna is very nice. Great stay, I'd definitely go back again!
My partner and I stayed at Alanna's place while attending a paleontology conference at the Westin in downtown LA. It was a 25 minute walk from the hotel, in Little Tokyo. Her place was very homey and comfortable, and a great escape in the evenings after a long day at the conference. We also loved eating and drinking in Little Tokyo nearly every night, and she gave us great recommendations. She is a very gracious host and made us feel right at home! I would love to stay with her again in LA!
I really enjoyed staying at Alanna's place and can definetely recommend it! I felt very welcomed from the first minute - great for my first airbnb-experience. I came for a congress in the Westin Hotel and walked there in the morning/took a cab for the way back (around 10 $).
As I'm a person who likes to walk around in a new city I did so in Downtown as well and had a good time exploring the city, the markets and parks.
Alanna is the most hospitably person and we had great talks, so I had a time I'll always look back at with only the best feelings. I would always stay there again.
For the way back to the airport I booked the 'supershuttle' (not expensive: 16 $) which will pick you up right in front the door, what made it easier to have an really early flight.
Overall a great experience! Thanks Alanna :)
